Superfine! NYCx3 is a revolutionary new art fair concept built in harmony with lower Manhattan’s high-roller real estate market.

The triple focus on women artists, contemporary surrealists, and LGBTQI+ artists plays out in the overarching themes: (wo)man, myth, and Magick. In keeping with the themed program, each fair will be limited to no more than 60 exhibitors for a highly curated experience.

“Superfine! has been a life-changing experience that throttled my career and created so many new relationships with artists, collectors, curators, galleries and journalists that I still benefit from to this day.”

— Sean Christopher Ward, exhibiting artist

NYCx1: (wo)man | 4.22-4.26.2020

The female perspective arrives at the forefront in the fair that launches NYCx3, with a focus on women artists taking their art to the next level.

NYCx2: myth | 4.29-5.2.2020

Surrealist ideas and modern mythology provide the backdrop for a diverse fair comprised of artists at the cutting edge of new contemporary art.

NYCx3: Magick | 5.5-5.9.2020

A celebration of all things queer: Magick embodies LGBTQI and ally artists representing the queer global experience in a broad range of styles and media.

A whole year of exhibitions in a weekend.

Connect with 5-7,000 motivated, art-hungry New Yorkers during each five day fair.

~25% of our visitors make a significant ($100-$2,500+) art purchase.

More than 50% of our exhibiting artists receive major media coverage.

Make art. Sell art. We do the rest.

Meet your next collectors in a friendly, welcoming space: the ideal environment to discover, collect, and sell art.

Innovative cost-saving and cost-spreading financing options that work with every artist’s budget to make exhibiting and selling a reality.

Serious opportunities for features in Superfine!’s earned (press + PR), owned (website, blog, and social), and paid (advertising) media.

Note: Superfine! takes no commission on any artwork sold either in person at the fair or via our online E-Fair.

You’re the art-making expert. We’re the art-marketing experts.

The smartest and most sophisticated marketing engine in the industry: we get the eyes you want in front of your work. Our audience is 26-45, affluent ($120k+/year), and buying art now.

Marble House Project Artist Residency
Deadline: December 9th
 
Marble House Project is a multidisciplinary artist residency program that fosters collaboration and the exchange of ideas, by providing an environment for artists across disciplines to live and work together. The residency integrates sustainable practices, including small-scale organic food production and waste conservation. Residents sustain their growth by engaging with the grounds while working on their artistic practice. Marble House Project is founded on the belief that the act of creating, whether in the studio or in nature, is how human potential expands and community thrives. Marble House Project accepts approximately 60 residents and is open to artists living in the United States and abroad. Residencies run from April through October, scheduled into six three-week residencies and one two-week family-friendly residency for artists with children. Each session accommodates eight artists and is specifically curated to bring together a diverse group of creative workers, to maximize potential for collaboration and dialogue while in residence and beyond. All residents live together in the historic, eight-bedroom Manley-Lefevre house, a communal space organized around responsibilities-sharing systems which highlight sustainability and community. All residents will be paired and asked to cook for shared dinners three times over the course of their residency, Monday-Friday. A substantial amount of the food we provide comes from our organic garden, which also serves as a space for gathering and an educational tool. Residents are invited to help with planting, harvesting, and maintenance. While not required, our hope is that you will spend some time in the garden alongside your studio practice. Each session culminates with ART SEED, our public open house weekend event. Artists are invited to share their work with our community through artist talks, readings, performances, and open studios and a farm to table evening. Marble House Project provides private bedrooms, food, private studio space, and artist support. We are not able to cover costs related to travel or materials. Once accepted, there is no fee to attend the residency. Applications are accepted in all creative fields including but not limited to writing, dance and choreography, performance, music composition and sound, film and video, visual arts, and culinary arts. Applications are reviewed by a jury of alumni, staff, and outside experts, and artists are selected based on quality of work, commitment to practice, and project description. Please choose the application that best describes your work. Two artists may apply together as a collaborative, and should complete one application. Within each application you will be asked to select the session dates best for you. You may choose the family friendly residency only if you will be bringing your children. Family friendly applicants may select additional dates if willing to attend without your children.
 
 
Humanities New York

Reading & Discussion Applications are Due Monday, December 9th for a Spring 2020 program!

Open to any tax-exempt organization in New York State, Humanities New York’s Reading & Discussion Programs bring together community members for a series of thematically-linked, text-based conversations about important ideas. Sixteen themes are available:

  • Votes for Women!: 2020 will mark the centennial of women’s suffrage in the United States. As part of Humanities New York’s slate of programming marking the centennial, we are proud to offer this Reading & Discussion series focused on the decades-long fight for women’s suffrage in New York and beyond.
  • Place and Story: Examine the natural world that surrounds us, from New York to the West, in this series developed and introduced by award-winning author and environmentalist Rick Bass. Through poetry, fiction, and journalism, readers will engage with perspectives that capture the complicated relationship Americans have with the land and living things around them.
  • The Vietnam War: NEW! The Vietnam War remains a searing chapter in our national story, and the social conflicts the war sparked continue to blaze. What was the cost of not examining the war more thoroughly or cogently, what are scholars saying about it now, and what can we gain from discussing it today? Read the memoirs, journalism, and fiction of the era in this timely discussion series. 
  • Your Silence Will Not Protect You: Audre Lorde: Explore the life and work of Audre Lorde, one of the foremost poets of the 20th century. Through the richness of Lorde’s work, participants can engage in discussion about the meanings of race, gender, and sexuality in American society. NOTE: Facilitators for this theme must attend a day-long training at HNY’s Manhattan offices in January. Travel expenses will be paid for those coming from outside New York City.
  • American Politics and Community Today:  What does it mean to be an American in the 21st century? What does a model American do, and what responsibilities do Americans have to their communities and each other? This theme engages with these questions and others regarding politics and the current state of civic thought, feeling, and participation.
  • Reaching for the American Dream: Pulitzer-Winning Novels:  Through five Pulitzer winning novels, this series looks at how authors have depicted the striving to better oneself and achieve the American dream – and how, despite our efforts, we often end of up unfulfilled or clashing with other elements of society.
  • James Baldwin’s America:  More than any other American author, James Baldwin speaks to both the promise and failures of American democracy. This R&D series provides citizens throughout New York State the opportunity to engage in substantive conversations about race and American society through Baldwin’s writings. NOTE: Facilitators for this theme must attend a day-long training at HNY’s Manhattan offices in January. Travel expenses will be paid for those coming from outside New York City.
  • In Cold Blood: True Crime, An American Genre: It’s been 53 years since Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood was first published. With the resurgence of True Crime, take a look back at some of the most terrible crimes in American history – and explore how past writers thoughtfully illuminated such acts. 
  • The Serious Side of Food: With books selected by noted restaurant critic and former HNY board member Mimi Sheraton, this series explores the complex, often overlooked personal, social, and cultural relationships we have with food, from the politics of food production to diet fads.
  • Our World Remade: World War I: Delve into the tragic and transformative events of “war to end all wars” through literature, poetry, and historical documents. 
  • Serving: Standing Down: Provides participants the opportunity to reflect on military service as well as the challenges and opportunities of transitioning from active duty to civilian life. Any tax-exempt organization in New York State can apply to host Serving: Standing Down, but Veteran-Serving Organizations (VSOs) are especially encouraged to do so. 
  • Growing & Aging: How does our perception of ourselves transform as we grow older? In what ways does aging change how we view others? How has the concept of “age” changed over time?
  • Lincoln on the Civil War: This series uses Selected Speeches, a volume of nine addresses delivered over the course of Lincoln’s political career, to explore issues of freedom, civic duty, slavery, and the Constitution.
  • Making Sense of the Civil War: This series explores different facets of the Civil War experience, informed by reading the words written or spoken by powerful voices from the past and present.
  • Muslim Journeys: Explore the diverse experiences and perspectives of Muslims around the world through literature and memoir.
  • Serving: Why and how do we choose to serve others? What is the relationship between those who serve and those who are served? If we serve, what sustains and renews us?

How to Apply

You choose a theme, decide how many sessions to hold, and find a local scholar to facilitate the discussions. After you’re awarded the program, you then select readings from our themed book lists that work best for your community. The book lists can be found on HNY’s website. 

Applications to host a Spring series are due Monday, December 9, 2019. Humanities New York trains your scholar-facilitator and pays him or her an honorarium of $150 per session. Host sites agree to pay a session fee of $25 per session; a limited number of waivers are available. Sites have the option of borrowing texts from HNY. Spring series must be scheduled between January and June 2020.  

You can apply here. Humanities New York requires registration and application through our online system.

Please note, HNY does not formally pair host organizations with scholar-facilitators. If you are interested in facilitating one of these programs, you are encouraged to reach out to potential host organizations in your community, telling them about the program and how it works.

Open Call for All Creative Disciplines - Byrdcliffe Artist Residency
Deadline: December 20 for 5 Month Residencies, February 15 for 1 Month Residencies
Description: Byrdcliffe Artist Residencies offer uninterrupted time and space for creatives in all disciplines. Our serene mountain community is 2.5 hours north of NYC in Woodstock NY with residencies open to individuals, teams, and couples at all stages of their career. Byrdcliffe’s AiR program is particularly beneficial to those who find it restorative to live in a community environment surrounded by natural beauty. Artists are invited to participate in optional programming such as open studios, wellness workshops, studio visits, field trips, and communal dinners, or are free to work in solitude during their entire stay.

5 Month Residents live in one of Byrdcliffe’s eight private cabins as an autonomous live/work space. Each cottage varies in its size and structure and is able to accommodate 1-2 people or couples. Individuals, couples, and collaborative and non-collaborative artist teams are encouraged to apply. Byrdcliffe unfortunately is unable to accommodate children at this time.  See complete cabin listings, including photos and a floorplan, to determine individual suitability by visiting the following link: http://www.woodstockguild.org/artist-residencies/5-month-residencies/ 

1 Month Residencies are offered for individuals and couples with private and communal housing available.  Each resident receives a private studio and living space. Ceramic artists are able to apply for 1, 2, or 4 month residencies. Fellowships for monthly residents available based on need and merit with funding also available for artists of the LGBTQA community and artists impacted by natural disasters.

 
Musicians Foundation

Mission & History

Musicians Foundation provides grants and services to professional musicians and their families in need of emergency assistance due to illness, unforeseen financial difficulties or catastrophic events that preclude them from pursuing their careers and maintaining fiscal stability.

Founded in 1914, Musicians Foundation is the country’s oldest independent nonprofit organization of its kind.

Program Activities

The majority of our grants are one-time modest amounts intended to address short-term circumstances speedily and efficiently.

The applicant must have worked as a professional musician for five or more years in the United States, currently reside in the United States, and have appropriate tax documents to prove professional status as a musician or music educator.

Grants range from approximately $500 to $3,000 depending on the applicant’s circumstance. Funding is given in the form of direct payment to medical practices, housing authorities, instrument retailers, health insurance companies and other vendors. We don’t give grants for scholarships, loans, or private unemployment benefits; we do not pay credit card bills.

A streamlined on-line application system asks the musician to fill out a simple form establishing eligibility and submit necessary financial documentation. We respond rapidly to the requests; the musician may receive the aid in a week.

In 2017 (the last audited year) we awarded $133,849 in grants to musicians. 61% of the payments were to cover rent or mortgage costs; 14% dental; 13% medical; 11% utility or car repairs; 1% for other issues.
